1:1 Executive Coaching:

You need a safe place to explore, plan and create. You want an objective perspective from someone outside the organization that cares about your personal success and holds your agenda as the highest priority. You want increased clarity and focus for optimal results. You enjoy structure and accountability to achieve what is most important to you.

"Donna's consistent professionalism let me know I would be 'safe' in talking with her.... Her ability to pick out key motivators and stumbling blocks for me in such a short time was impressive; she has very strong listening skills."

Brenda Cavanaugh, Sun Microsystems 

Donna has worked with many successful business leaders who recognize that success is a journey, not a destination, and champions continually strive for new heights. Aware of the distinctive challenges people face when they are at the top of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs pyramid, Donna focuses on aspirational needs.

"I had a wonderful experience with Donna. She not only provided great direction she guided me through some major changes in my professional life and personal life. I am more self-aware...I am more productive today and have a clearer outlook on my role within the organization. Without coaching I don't think I would be at this point. I am a better person as a result of Donna's dedication and perseverance."                   

Rob Davis, VP, Great American Financial Resources

“Donna also helps by taking the pressure off me by helping my young leaders become real leaders. She cares about the individual’s future and is sincere. She helps rugged individualists get a better handle on their people skills; the soft side. She teaches them how to understand first and ask versus tell. They communicate better, listen better, win-win negotiate better, and are more understanding and empathetic.”
